We teased it, and you spoke up loudly so here are the details!
A “Once In A Lifetime” trip to Cuba with Start Making Sense: A Tribute to Talking Heads. That’s right we are going to Cuba and we are inviting our fans & friends to join us for this once in a lifetime cultural concert experience. This is a very special trip. To the best of our knowledge no band has ever done this before. It took some serious effort to make this happen and that means there are limited spots available. We literally have only 50 seats we can offer. During this 5 day / 4 night journey Start Making Sense will be playing two different shows at two different historic venues of Havana. You, our fans & friends will have access to daily cultural tours that include exploration of historical sights, local arts and music, free breakfast, two dinners (with Start Making Sense), and exposure to the Afro-Cuban music scene that has helped to not only inspire the music of Talking Heads but musicians globally.
We all know that music is the universal language that connects us, and while under unique circumstances the Arts (including Cuban music) have thrived. This is our chance to be a part of a larger conversation and at the same time give back.
SMS will be using a portion of this experience to share with our Cuban brothers and sisters the gift of giving back. We will be bringing drum sticks, guitar strings, colored pencils, pens, and other items that the people and the musicians of the US might take for granted. These items are in very short supply in Cuba and will help make the creation of art and music easier for the Cuban people. We are encouraging you, our guests on this trip, to do the same.

Start Making Sense are selling out rooms throughout Eastern PA and into NY and beyond. This band will be a huge hit, as the Talking Heads are never on tour and the band's amazing dedication to the music and fun loving attitude has proven to be a favorite at clubs and festivals.
They blew the audience away at the Bella Terra Music festival where their late night boogie slot was the highlight of the whole event.
If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 7-piece Talking Heads Tribute take pride in faithfully recreating the music of Talking Heads entire career. Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, giving you a "once in a lifetime" experience. Prepare yourself for a rockin', funkin', danceable celebration of the new-wave art punk you loved from the 80's!!!
